A few steps is all it takes to create your list of eligible voters in the POLYAS Online Voting Manager. Here's how to create your online electoral roll.
1. Enter eligible voters
If the number of eligible voters is low, we recommend that you use the POLYAS Online Voting Manager and enter them directly into the electoral register. Simply add the people and their data line by line. Just click Enter to create each new line.
To delete a row, move the mouse cursor onto the relevant line and click the arrow on the right-hand side.
2. Upload the electoral roll
If your electoral roll is more complex and you need to consider different constituencies or voter groups, you can import your electoral roll as an Excel file.
Do this by going to the “Voters” menu item, click the gear-wheel icon and then click the “Import” tab in the left-hand sidebar. You can now drag and drop the file with your electoral roll into the window, so uploading it to the Online Voting Manager. Use our template to structure your electoral roll: You can download it directly from the Online Voting Manager.
After downloading, you just have to set the column names and determine which of the voter attributes should be used as the ID (e.g. the e-mail address). The voter ID and a password generated by POLYAS together are the login data to the online election, and they are sent to your eligible voters with their invitation.
